A note from our friends at Twelve Points Wealth Management:
Big companies often have well-established processes, systems, and hierarchies that have contributed to their success.
People that thrive in big companies tend to excel at winning within a predetermined framework. However, in a privately-held, scrappier start-up, there is no framework to follow, which is why big company veterans often struggle in a more entrepreneurial environment.
Instead of basing your hires off an impressive name on a resume, look for someone innovative, comfortable with chaos, action oriented, and creative — someone with an entrepreneurial mindset.
